Greetings Boulder (and Beyond!) members
I am the current organizer for Fort Veg*n--Northern Colorado's Vegan and Vegetarian meetup.
We have a booth at next weekend's Rocky Mountain Sustainable Living Fair, a very large and hugely popular regional, annual Eco Fair...15,000+ mainstream folks from Colorado and surrounding states attend.
The Locavore community has become fairly entrenched with "grass-fed, free-range" flesh products, and the participants at this fair largely subscribe to this perspective. We would LOVE to have a STRONG Vegan and Vegetarian presence at this event, mostly to provide others who are easily swayed that there IS another, truly humane diet that won't conflict with their conscience. Maybe I'm incorrect about this, but what I do know is there is strength in numbers. Won't you consider coming to this event or even Volunteering at our booth? We especially need afternoon volunteers on Saturday, Sept. 17 from 1:30-6pm and Sunday, Sept. 18, morning 9:30-1:30 & afternoon 1:30-5pm (exhibit's close).
Any printed literature or artwork to dress the booth is most helpful, too. The entrance fee of $8 is waived for volunteers. Contact me if you are able to help your northern fellow Vegans at [address removed] .
Thanks for your consideration and help.
Organizer, Fort Veg*n
PS...Charlotte Cressey will be giving at workshop/talk on Sunday 9/18/2011 @ 3pm on "Plant-Based Diets" at the Fair...please consider coming to support her as well. :o)
